Rules

The tournament will be played to 7-a-side FIFA laws with no offside. The back-pass rule will apply. There will be rolling substitutions, which must take place from the halfway line. The player must leave the field before the substitute can enter play. A goal cannot be scored directly from the centre pass. It is the responsibility of the coach to ensure players leave the field of play and administer substitutions.

 

FREE KICKS:

All free kicks are direct and the opponents must be at least 5 metres from the ball (same applies for corners).

 

SCORING:

Points will be allocated = 4 points for a win / 2 for a draw / 1 for a loss.

The teams will take 3 penalties each, followed by sudden death. If the scores are still equal, the players will take a second penalty until the game is decided.

2 x 12-minute games (2 minutes half-time) for all games including playoffs and finals.
